Which is it?

      No Comments on Which is it?

For the last several months we’ve been inundated with leaks about Trump and Russia. Somehow the government knew when Flynn spoke to the Russian Ambassador. Somehow the government knew this, that, and the other — sometimes “knowing” things we now know are false — but they “knew.” People within the government leaked several things about the President and/or his people….

Gorsuch! Winning.

      No Comments on Gorsuch! Winning.

Not Tired Yet Been a busy day but I just want to offer a few quick thoughts on why Gorsuch is a great nominee, and why he’ll be confirmed: – He was confirmed unanimously. This is the major reason I think he’ll be confirmed. But I do expect hemming and hawing. – He’s young (49), which means he’ll be on… Read more »

The Transition, (Near) Four Weeks On

      No Comments on The Transition, (Near) Four Weeks On

The transition from the Obama to Trump administrations started a little under a month ago, and it’s been one of the most popular stories in the world, overshadowing a lot of other issues that have cropped up and giving rise to a lot of hooting and hollaring from various corners. Mostly, the media. The media have made themselves the story… Read more »

NNWM Update, Misc

      No Comments on NNWM Update, Misc

Ugh. I went from a few thousand words ahead, to just a few hundred short, to entirely underwater. I must reverse this trend or I’ll have a negative word count by December 1. – Is the proper term populist nationalist or the reverse? – Has anybody put a suicide watch on the incredibly sad adult sized children from Hollywood? –… Read more »

The Weakness of Denial

      No Comments on The Weakness of Denial

Versus the Strength of Introspection. There aren’t a lot of people in the media I could ever say I’ve been a fan of. In fact, there aren’t many I’d even tolerate. Over the last ten years it has become much worse — maybe they changed, or maybe I did. But I certainly notice the thinly veiled contempt they have for… Read more »

Conventional Wisdom and Scared Leftists.

      No Comments on Conventional Wisdom and Scared Leftists.

Still Not Playing Nice. First, let’s look at the scared leftists. This is the shorter bit of the post: Leftists right now are shrieking with rage, anger, and fear all across social media and occasionally traditional media. Reports are that various groups are “afraid.” There is a great deal of wailing and gnashing of teeth going on, and I’d like… Read more »

We Did It, & Go Fuck Yourselves

      No Comments on We Did It, & Go Fuck Yourselves

I will not be conciliatory. If you want that, go somewhere the fuck else. As you know by now, Donald Trump will be the next President of the United States. Ding, Dong, the witch is dead. Congratulations, President-Elect Trump, Mike Pence, Trump’s family and staff, Trump voters and supporters, and America: the long national nightmare will end on January 20th,… Read more »

Truth in the Fog of Media The media over the last two days has been a hilarious, screeching ball of nutbags. They’ve been giving extra time to Clinton surrogates and now, after mocking Trump for his conspiracy theories, they are engaged in their own. Here’s what we know: – Hillary used a private e-mail server. This violated at the very… Read more »

A New Wind

      No Comments on A New Wind

Trump is going to win, and here’s why: – “Crowd size doesn’t matter” wasn’t true eight years ago. Trump has a ton of people showing up everywhere he goes. Pence draws bigger crowds than Hillary and Kaine combined. – “Yard signs don’t matter” wasn’t true eight years ago. These two combined show a ton of enthusiasm for Trump: that wasn’t… Read more »
